Eliot Honaker is an object lesson in why it&rsquo;s a good idea to play on DRF Tournaments. A few weeks back, he won a $25 feeder. The next day he just missed qualifying for the Santa Anita Autumn Championship, but won $1,200 in site credit for finishing third. He used that credit to play in a $95 Round 1 qualifier, where he advanced to the $580 Grade 1 qualifier, and on Saturday he won his second entry to the $1 million, no&#45;takeout World Championship of Handicapping.As usual, Honaker used an array of Daily Racing Form products and content &ndash; including Formulator, DRF Plus, TimeformUS, and the DRF Players&rsquo; Podcast &ndash; to make his selections. He collected in eight of the 12 races, with seven of those returning between $10 and $20 win&#45;place combined. His total of $108.90 was best in a robust 26&#45;entry field.Honaker frequently travels to tournaments as well, but will play this one from the comfort of home. &ldquo;My son was pumped that I don&rsquo;t have to go to Vegas for this one!&rdquo; he quipped.Joining Honaker in the finals of the WCH will be tournament veteran Sean Nolan, who finished second on Saturday with $102.80. His largest collection was Twin Farms ($37.40) in Keeneland&rsquo;s sixth, the second contest race. He got hot again late, stringing together three double&#45;digit hits across the country with La Coronel ($19.20) in the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup, Warm Springs ($14.40), and Barbara Beatrice ($17.40) down the hill at Santa Anita.On Friday night on DRF Tournaments, Al Isola Jr. won himself a free trip for two to Australia courtesy of Sky Racing World, thanks to a great run in The Everest Tournament. This was a special event that attracted 1,680 entries, featuring the first eight races on Royal Randwick&rsquo;s Saturday afternoon card, which took place Friday evening in the States. Isola nearly ran the table, cashing in seven of the eight contest events for a total of $93.50. When Redzel ($24.60) got the job done in the Everest, he was off to the land down under. The top 100 finishers received a free entry to a special invite&#45;only tournament with $500 in prizes to be held on Saturday, Oct. 21. The other big news in the contest world from the weekend happened at Keeneland. Nick Tammaro won Saturday&rsquo;s $400 buy&#45;in live&#45;bankroll contest, for which he received cash and a Breeders&rsquo; Cup seat. Tammaro won a second seat and more cash on Sunday. He had the lead heading to the last race &ndash; he was looking to emulate Blaise Brucato&rsquo;s double from Keeneland&rsquo;s spring contests &ndash; but settled for sixth.Tom Maloof cashed big on the first and last races of the card to amass a final bankroll of $13,004 and an outright win on Sunday. Maloof also took home $21,000 in prize money and major tournament seats. In the opener, he hit a $100 trifecta, which paid out for $8,680 thanks to the 13&#45;1 winner, Boxer Boy. In the finale, he cashed with a $700 exacta (returning $8,120) and a $20 tri ($964).&ldquo;I bet with both hands when I get to the dirt sprints,&rdquo; Maloof said. &ldquo;I wouldn&rsquo;t say they&rsquo;re easier, but I know I can&rsquo;t figure out the rest of them. In the one&#45;turn races I can see a little better how the pace will play out.&rdquo;The ninth&#45;race score moved Maloof up from ninth to first. &ldquo;Because the last race was pretty chalky I figured I&rsquo;d be in the top six but I really didn&rsquo;t expect to leapfrog that many people,&rdquo; he admitted.The top 15 finishers earned cash from a $58,500 pool, with the prize amounts descending from first to 15th. After Maloof, the top 15 was rounded out by Jim Staub, Mike Maloney, Mark Deaton, Tammaro, Paul Weizer, Sean Boarman, Jim Casey, Travis Stone, David Watts, Dan Slattery, Blake Jessee, Clay Sanders, Jack Jenkins, and Brian Johnson. The contest attracted 164 entries.◗ Contest action returns to DRFT on Wednesday with a full slate of games, including a free contest where you can start your journey to the World Championship of Handicapping.
